The American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana threatened Tuesday to sue a northeastern Louisiana charter school if it doesn't change rules that keep pregnant students out of the classroom and require girls under suspicion of being pregnant to be tested.
The four-paragraph "Student Pregnancy Policy" in Delhi Charter
School's policy manual says that if a suspected girl refuses to take a
pregnancy test, she can be removed from class or the school.
That violates the U.S. Constitution and federal laws against sexual
discrimination, state ACLU executive director Marjorie R. Esman said.
